A standard NetEye implementation uses a SMS gateway for SMS alerting. Sometimes, you need to create SMS alerts through emails deriving from other systems. For example some production machinery are just able to send email notifications in case of eventual restrictions, but you might prefer to get a SMS message.
The new EventHandler interface allows a simple rule creation for incoming emails.
Does an incoming event/email match one of the predefined rules, the corresponding action will be executed. So, after the configuration, NetEye will also be able to handle the incoming email messages to create a SMS messages.
In that way, you do not have to buy additional SMS alerting systems. You can simply use the existing NetEye installation by upgrading it to the latest version, configure the EventHandler module for the email rules and finally configure your third party system to send the email to the NetEye server.
The intuitive user interface of the EvenHandler module, as well as the variety of possibilities to create rules and actios made this functionality very popular among our customers.
